WOYWW #140 and a blog candy reminder

Happy Wednesday!!! Welcome to WOYWW #140! Let me say that this week went faster then the weeks in the past and I haven't idea why it feels like it has flown. I managed to make it around to all the desks last week by Friday night and I have enjoyed reading all the comments made on my blog posts! WOYWW had a lot of new faces last week and it was fun to visit with old and new friends. Are you wondering what all this talk about "visiting" is all about? The you need to check out Stamping Ground the home of Julia...Queen of Blog Hopping!

Okay my desk this week...is a colorful mess. I am using Mod Podge on both projects and thought I would just do them together to keep the glue mess at a minimum. I promise I try to keep the glue in the bottle or on the project but I woke up this morning with a blob stuck in my hair and had to soak it out!

The bucket is my Valentine 'box' for the party next Sunday. I posted the see my Valentines I made a couple weeks ago on WOYWW #138 but if you missed them our would like to see them again...they are so awesome... you can click on the link and it will take you there.

The second project is my Inspiration Jar that I am making. I am using the Stained Glass technique and Mod Podging tissue paper cut out with the Tattered Florals die to a tall glass jar with a lid. I am going to print up a bunch of positive and inspirational bits of paper and stuff the jar with them so that I can pull one out when I am in need of a little bit of inspiration! I borrowed this idea from blog that made a stained glass candle holder that was absolutely gorgeous when lit. The tore the tissue in to various bits but I like the floral die cut idea! I may try it out as a candle holder too!
After I get them finished I will upload a picture so you can see them finished.


Wanted to remind everyone about the blog candy again this week and to say thank you for such an awesome response. I have had such a favorable response that I have decided to increase the number of possible winners of prizes. I think I will have one Grand Prize and a couple lessor prizes that I will be giving away. Once again it is open to only followers so please make sure you are a follower so your comment will count towards the drawing. If you comment on every blog post I make you will get an additional ticket thrown in the hat for every comment. It is going to be a fun! Everyone is eligible cause I will ship overseas too!

Okay I am done for today. I have a cup of hot tea...herbal cause it is 12:46 am here and I will be going to bed soon after reading a few early posts. Have a great week.

  23. Thanks for the peak of your desk on this WOYWW.

    Your inspirations jar looks amazing Vicki, so bright and colourful and what a fab idea to cut flowers out and stick on rather than just random pieces of torn paper. I can imagine that the candle holder would have looked great too with the candle light shining through the glass.

    Happy Crafting!

  28. Fab projects on your desk this week Vickie. I love your inspiration jar with the stained glass effect. Did you know Mod Podge comes in a sparkle format too - I got some for Christmas - it's just like usual paper Mod Podge, but with a fine glitter embedded into.

    Thanks for already stopping by my desk this week:)

  29. Hi there. Love your Valentine box. Also, love the tissue paper jar. The idea of putting little bits of inspiration in there and pulling one out sounds perfect to me. I love using Mod Podge but have never gotten a glop stuck in my hair. I remember hearing about getting chewing gum out of hair with an ice cube -- don't know if that would work the same way or not.

    Thanks for chance to win some blog candy!!!

    Hugs,

  45. Herbal tea - now that sounds good at this time of night. That stained glass technique gives such stunning results, so rich and luscious. I am finding it increasingly difficult to get round even half of the folks on a Wednesday. Even if I did nothing else, I think I would still struggle, so I really appreciate your visit, late or not. thank you for your kind comments. xx Maggie #89 (or I was last time I looked)
